Is the real life princess also going to become a Disney princess? We sure hope so.

It’s not even been a week since Meghan{ =nofollow}and Harry made the announcement to step down from their senior duties, but already, it looks like the Suits star could make a return to acting. (Which we are so here for.) According to reports in The Times this weekend, the Duchess has already recorded her first voiceover work for Disney, with the recording happening at the end of last year. And, instead of being directly paid for the project, it has been reported that the money will go towards a wildlife charity of Meghan’s choosing.

It looks like the deal was kickstarted at The Lion King premiere in July last year, where Harry and Meghan met Disney CEO Bob Iger. And there's evidence, as a resurfaced video sees Harry telling the boss that his wife is interested in doing voiceovers. ‘You know she does voiceovers,’ Harry can be heard saying, as Iger replies, ‘Oh, really?’ Then, gesturing towards Meghan, who was speaking with Beyoncé and JAY-Z several feet away, Harry can be heard saying, ‘She’s really interested.’ (Who said networking didn’t lead to new job opportunities?)

Understandably, Meghan gave up acting following her engagement to Harry in 2017, telling BBC News at the time, ‘I don’t see [my engagement] as giving anything up, I just see it as a change. It’s a new chapter.' She continued, speaking about her role as Rachel Zane on Suits, which she had since 2011. 'Also, keep in mind, I’ve been working on my show Suits for seven years. We’re very, very fortunate to have that sort of longevity on a series. Once we hit the 100 episode marker, I thought, "You know, I have ticked this box."'

Disney is yet to comment on the deal - but we’ll be keeping an ear out for when we can (hopefully) hear Meghan on screen.
